Not that I think this idea would have been the next TNG. It would have depended on the writing and likability of the actors.
But the idea of taking an idealist society that has gone to crap because of political corruption, public apathy, and unfettered corporations and bringing it back into the light... Well, that's some pretty timely stuff right there and I think it could resonate with the general audience.
